Welcome to CutTime Productions –
the art of inspiring the whole community!
CutTime® refreshes classical music with soul and personality to introduce the symphony to the casual and curious in restaurants, bars, clubs, homes, offices, churches and schools. CutTime is two ensembles of 4-8 musicians + the Classical Revolution Detroit series. We HIP new listeners to the fun, playing from our huge catalog of lively symphony favorites and funky-romantic new compositions. Passionate & informative staged concerts & free reading events are hosted by founder-composer Rick Robinson (Mr. CutTime), formerly of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, to orchestrate a new approach to the classical arts. By adding context, key info, amplification, interviews & games, CutTime means it’s time to cut some formality out of classical music!
CutTime won a major grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, part of its Knight Arts Challenge, as well as the Kresge Foundation to share the symphony throughout Detroit with the Classical Revolution Detroit (club classical) series.
